    Thank you for asking....yes things have finally calmed down. We are now down in CA, Mom is doing ok in ID, DH is doing great after his knee replacement 8 weeks ago, my DD is doing as well as expected after her fourth back surgery and our company here in CA are gone and hopefully we will be back to our regular routine! icon_smile.gif It is soooo nice to be able to get fresh produce here in California for a more reasonable price and having it so much fresher! I hope everything is fine with you and the rest! Oh yes, is cabbage and spinach is also considered a green for this Spring forum?

    Boy Mama Surf, sounds like you have been running. Glad to see you back. If it's green it counts. Don't forget herbs are also included; i.e., basil, parsley, fresh oregano, sage, etc. The list is endless. I only listed a few ideas on the front page to get is started.

    Anybody up for a little game? How about a green veggie/herb alphabet game?

    A is up.....

    Now who can come up with a green veggie or herb starting with A?
